I love the wispy smoke! It gives the place a hookah den vibe.

Correct my guesses if they’re wrong, please, other commenters?
Guin is a lesbian.
Venne is ace.
Venne’s cousin Tia is straight.
The new mage, whose name I still don’t know, is gay like Guin.

Also correct my spelling of the characters’ names where I got it wrong.
And any other detail you can tell I’m wrong about.

Thank you!
I’m really enjoying this comic and also the comments!

It seems to me that Venne and guin keep things professional between them so far, but I just got this -feeling- that they’re going to wind up hooking up over the course of this story. Of course, traveling with somebody for a long time creates an intimacy all of its own kind, so perhaps their intimacy won’t be heading down the sexual path.

Mage's name is Zia. She is at least lesbian. We don't know whether strictly so or if she's bisexual. She isn't gay. Gay was originally a euphemism reserved for male homosexuals. But with the failure of our educational system the lines for distinction of such usage became blurred.



WTF? Venne is smoking crack.

That's the fan name, I haven't revealed a canon name.

Okay.

Just remember there's a rhyming scheme going on here and stick to that. Mia? Lia? Pia?

I like the bald guy with the red handlebar moustache. I know, I know, what an odd thing to focus on in a sea of flesh, bit it's cute, darn it!

What is the general society's stance on prostitution and brothels ?

It seems that at least Venne and Guinevere are pretty relaxed about it.
Tia doesn't count, she has a memory span of a goldfish and probably forgets prejudices faster than she learns them.

This is a very relaxed world.

Oh that's cool.

I wonder what the spirits thinks about it ?

Spirits don't think!

They don't really exist, as such. These chapters should explain.

From whence do they spring? What are they?

Well, it'll be explained in these chapters, but basically mana reacts to thought. If it reacts to the same thought patterns over and over, it becomes a stable pattern: a spirit.

Active spirits like this one resonate with similar patterns in visitor minds and continually grow and adapt... but there's no consciousness to it.

They can seem conscious, though, because they flow through your mind and act like you expect them to.

Ahhh, no spirits but thought forms!

I see, your own thought shapes the forms the mana takes.
And the form then interacts with you, making new thought spring to the fore, and so on.

Wouldn't that technically be considered masturbation then ?

So you could have "evil" spirits that react to negative thoughts and feelings. Nightmares that really do hunt you because it's what you expect.

That wouldn't be in any way new in fantasy, but it'd be interesting that they'd actually be completely without malice since they don't have a mind of their own.
